New posters for The Divergent Series: Allegiant have been released by Summit Entertainment via the official AllegiantTwitter account. The six posters include five character images of main cast Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Peter (Miles Teller), Caleb Prior (Ansel Elgort), and Christina (Zoë Kravitz). The sixth poster is a group shot of these characters.

From what we've seen at the end of Insurgent and from early Allegiant trailers, the post-apocalyptic setting shown in the previous films was revealed to be but a small part of a much bigger world in the franchise.

The poster highlights how "purity" will play a role in the film and how Tris Prior's role will be taking on a separate story than that of her friends as they explore the world outside the wall.

Take a look at the new posters:

The pure percentages in the posters are a reference to the experiment held in their small Chicago society to create people who are 100% pure. "Divergents" are those who are considered wholly pure. From what I can glean from these posters, it seems to set up an entirely bigger world and more interesting storyline that the franchise could explore.

However, while fan reception has been positive for the posters, the same cannot be said for the entire franchise. It's been reported that the series has had troubles at the box office as compared to the likes of sci-fi post-apocalyptic franchises like The Hunger Games. Hopefully, Allegiant will find a way to avoid having a cliche sci-fi dystopian ending and we'll find more surprises with Ascendant.

Allegiant will see the return of Octavia Spencer (Amity faction member, Johanna), Ray Stevenson (Four's father, Marcus), Naomi Watts (Four's mother, Evelyn), Maggie Q (Dauntless faction member, Tori), and Keiynan Lonsdale (Dauntless faction member, Uriah). Newcomers include Jeff Daniels (David), Bill Skarsgård (Matthew), and Nadia Hilker (Nita).

The Divergent Series: Allegiant is slated for release on March 18, while The Divergent Series: Ascendant hits theaters June 9, 2017.
